Why does YLW need another runway?

Oh thats right, they don't - so who really cares about how many runways another airport have? Does it make any of those airports better than YLW for the travelling public? Nope :up:

It's called keeping up with the Jones'. Kelowna is one of the most pretentious and materialistic cities in Canada, so it's very, very important to have more and bigger stuff than everyone else. It's not needed, but when a sh**hole like Prince George has 3, it hurts the pride.

The current Prince George Airport was planned in 1940 (opened in 1945) - as a staging post for Canadian and US Military.

Realistically, no ...

*there is no need nor is there any room for a crossing runway.

*we are well within capacity for the runway we have.

The end.

YLW is already way ahead of the Jones' ...

More flights.
More airlines.
More destinations.
More frequencies.
Bigger terminal.
Nicer terminal.
More passenger amenities.
Big plans for big expansions.

My friend was stick at the Vancouver airport of 8 hours after the last storm because of the massive backlog flying into and out of Kelowna. If there were a second runway, they could get the backlog cleared up a lot faster!

Lol - yeah OK - that “backlog” of a dozen planes will go so much faster with a second runway. It’s already been established that YLW doesn’t require one nor is there anyplace to put one - not sure why you insist on trolling with this.

Things are just starting to move here in Vancouver after their little snow storm - maybe the should spend 10s of millions for something they don’t need just to appease some internet poster.

Maybe purchase your friend a copy of War & Peace, to help the time go by. lol
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Dublin airport was just shut down for a few hours because of snow. Quick, better build another runway to clear up the backlog :laugh:

Kelowna has had 5.8 feet of snow this winter. Dublin has barely had any. Plus, Dublin already has 2 runways.
